It was. The year's best album was called Funeral after all!

Is it ok if I like Ryan Adams' version of 1989 more than yours? Those are some good songs though!

Wow. I was expecting some ironic ballad version or something, but that was note-perfect. Awesome as hell!

Brad Wilk's drumming is one of the things that made this band great too. He's probably the best drummer I've recorded and worked with, and a sweet super nice guy to boot. The guy plays with so much power. Like, Dave Grohl levels of power. It was fun as hell.

I think he likes to play the crowdpleasers. I mean, the reaction he gets from playing and singing the first line to "Hey Jude" has got to make playing that one for the millionth time worth it. From what I understand though, he does vary his sets a bit, and he's always playing stuff he hasn't played live before. He played "A Day In The Life" for the first time just a few years ago, a song which was never intended to be played live. That had to be a challenge to pull off, so it's cool he's still trying "new" things in his 70s.

Very cool. I love that guy's voice so much. Interestingly arranged cover too.

Was every great rock musician born in or around 1946 given an implant to die when they turn 70 or something? Ugh.

Yeah I thought the headline was a bit of a low blow myself. I mean, I can see the similarity in what they do, but still. Also, I've worked with Marina and she was a lovely human being. (Same with Charli for that matter.)

Fantastic writeup! Perfect article to drink coffee over on a snow day here in Portland. The song that was always the most memorable for me on this album is "Ask Me Anything." The minimalist Mellotron thing is pretty rad. It's a nice song.

Did you know that Is This It was recorded digitally? From what I've read, it was a pretty scrappy setup they were working with, even by the standards of the day. And it was all recorded to a click track. So in many ways, they were ALWAYS "Pro Tools/DAW rock." They just had a superior approach and superior songs than, say, Nickelback.
